The Egyptian onion adapts very well to the Ligurian climate: planted in the ground, it is capable of producing every year and for future year numerous topsets, significantly increasing production. Characterized by these topsets rather than traditional flowers, it is easy to grow: by planting the bulbs collected from the mother plant in spring, the plant will grow without needing much care and resist well to diseases. Sowing can be done in fall: the plant withstands harsh winters without problems. If it is not harvested, it will regrow again by itself. The top of the plant, which can even reach 1.2 meters in height (and thus the name tree onion), slowly bends under the weight of its topset until it touches the ground, where the roots starts new plants. And this is the reason for the name walking onion.
